Wouldn't it feel wonderful to step off the hamster wheel of life and be free?
We've so much space in the Yorkshire Dales, it's easy to indulge in a little gentle rule breaking.
Don’t act your age!
Roll down a hill and giggle. Paddle in an ice-cold stream. Freewheel on a bike. Don't brush your hair today. It's easy to find a place where you can just be you.
Discover our quirky secrets, explore hidden valleys, chat with a local. Strangers don't stay strangers for long! We love to share our favourite places.
Buy provisions from a farm shop, shop at a farmers market and enjoy a picnic with a wonderful Yorkshire Dales view. Drink in the space, peace and enjoy munching in the open air. No one will moan about your table manners here!
Be a lazy layabout
Don't rush about. Just stop, and stare at the landscape. Breathe in fresh air.
Listen to the sounds of the birds and animals. Wander and wonder. Enjoy the sense of calm in the special places suggested by our Dales' insiders.
Stay up late
Forget about clocks. Stay up late. Gaze at the stars and our amazing night sky.
Enjoy the sights you normally miss when sleeping!
